Testimonials

Alexis Harvey, PhD in Environmental Studies.

"They (the books) were very creative! Loved the illustrations of the animals, especially the more common ones that we familiar with, as you see that animal or insect in a whole new light. Definitely learned about some new animals and insects too, and liked that the book is all about creatures from BC, although  I recognized a lot of these creatures from growing up on the prairies as well.  Thanks for sending them. I think the girls are a bit too young to fully appreciate them, but they did enjoy going through the alphabet and looking at the pictures. These will be a good keepsake to look at before/after our annual summer trips to BC."

"Dave led a very engaging cartooning workshop, held at the George Mackie Library, during Spring Break.  There were 25 children, aged to be in Grades 5-7, in attendance. 

Being an illustrator as well as a former art teacher, he had a great rapport with the children.  He was very patient, encouraging and he appealed to all skill levels.  The children all had a great time, and it was wonderful to see their excitement as they shared their individual creations afterwards.  We look forward to having him facilitate similar workshops in the future."

 

Dianne  Wone, Teacher-Librarian, Richardson Elementary School, Delta.

"Dave's presentation was a valuable experience for our intermediate students because they learned about the working process of creating a non-fiction book and all the hard work and research that goes into it. The workshop concluded with an engaging hands-on experimentation with cartooning. While Dave is retired, he certainly maintains a high respect for student individuality and creativity, and manages large groups well."
